SSAS Cube post processing notification

SSMS can give an audible BEEP / Meep :) when done with the executing query.

Data Processing for a cube process usually takes a few hours to do, and then I have to trigger off something else afterwards. I have to keep checking PROCESS progress to know if it is done.

Is there something similar to a BEEP / Email notification etc for SSAS cube processing? A post-Process trigger would do just fine.

You could process it in a SQL Agent job. That way you could have the steps to process the cubes - which will run until the processing has finished - and then further steps. You can even perform different steps depending on whether the cubes built OK.

I've blogged how to do it here: http://sqlblogcasts.com/blogs/davidwimbush/archive/2009/11/25/how-to-process-a-cube-in-a-sql-agent-job.aspx
